Those are lovely green eyes you have

Hello bee blog readers. I haven’t posted lately because I have been busy…and stressed. You see, buzzy is getting ready to defend. Yup, I defend this coming Wednesday. I have been writing and preparing a talk. So, to decrease my stress I go out and take pictures of bees.

This is a bee in the genus Centris.  There are 22 different bee species known to reside in the U.S. They are very beautiful bees. They are robust and super fuzzy. I mean just look at her legs! That orange stuff on her legs is pollen. Aren’t her olive colored eyes beautiful? If you live in the southwest, these bees are currently out and buzzing around. Look for them.

Centris sp.

Please enjoy the beauty of these special insects and thank them for the pollination services they do for us all.


  1. Good luck on your defense!
    Go in bees. Bees be with you.

  2. Wow! Congrats! And remember, if your committee didn’t have confidence in you, they wouldn’t have scheduled your defense.

    Of course, they plan to make you suffer before they admit that….. 🙂

  3. You guys have the cutest bees out there. I wish these were around here.

  4. I know–I’m so jealous that your bees are adorable. I would like to snuggle with this one.

    Or maybe not.

    • Thanks for visiting still life 🙂 they are very cute creatures aren’t they.

  5. Thank you all for your good thoughts 🙂 they obviously helped since I passed!

  6. Hey, congratulations for passing. What are you going to do now?

    And what a lovely green-eyed bee. I have green eyes, too…

    • Thanks Catherine! Now I have to find a job in California. Let the job hunting begin.
